Horrible Had it for a while and it worked fine, but I can't seem to be able to remove it. Even after completely uninstalling the app my background keeps changing daily. It's annoying.

Fabulous app [EDITED] This app seems to keep my device awake for hours, sometimes hogging 20% of my battery life. I've circumvented the problem by changing its permissions, but a fix would be appreciated. I've had this ever since I bought my first Android phone. Love a new wallpaper every day.

More customization I love love love this app but there are times when my Samsung galaxy s4 mini's screen is to small and it can't centre on the cool part of the picture. My suggestion is to add a feature that allows me to move the pic and decide what's in and what's not in the background. For instance today's, 21st of March, it start right after the solar eclipse
